Amy Schumer Takes Her Fashion Cred to the Next Level With the New Clothing Line Le Cloud

Two years ago, actress and comedian Amy Schumer switched lives with Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour. For one day, the I Feel Pretty star traded in her jokes and jabs to sit behind a desk, sunglasses on, and run a magazine. Despite the cheeky script, it was her introduction to a career in fashion. Now, she’s pushing further into the field with a very unscripted, very real sartorial pursuit. Today, she and her business partner and friend, stylist Leesa Evans, announced that they will officially launch their new women’s clothing line, Le Cloud, at Saks Off 5th on December 13. The 23-piece collection is made up of comfortable, wearable separates in neutral shades that will be available from $38 to $248. The most important aspect of Le Cloud is the sizing, which runs from a 0 or XS to a 20 or XXL. Schumer and Evans’s goal for this venture was, as they told the press, to give women an everyday wardrobe that made them feel good and look good at the same time. The fabrics, like crepe and satin, work for every body type and are “as light as a cloud,” hence the name.

Schumer has always been very open about her struggles with body positivity, sometimes speaking bluntly about the issue and other times becoming hilariously self deprecating to get her point across. During an appearance on the Today show a couple of years ago, the star said, “Going to put jeans on or things that I see girls in magazines or on TV wearing wasn’t agreeing with my body type. You feel bad and wrong. It creates so much anxiety.” It was this personal journey that led her to Le Cloud, as well as to her first time meeting Evans on the set of Trainwreck. Schumer credits Evans with helping her look at fashion in a new light and for pushing her to try new silhouettes and styles and feel confident in whatever she wears. Through Le Cloud, the pair hopes to give that same feeling to women everywhere, whether they’re working a 9-to-5, taking care of their kids, making a joke onstage, pretending to edit a magazine, or designing a fashion line for the very first time.
